Drainage problems often develop as a result of layering inside of your home's pipe system.
Common things that cause clogs are:
- Hair- In the shower, hair tends to fall off and eventually bundle up in the drain, causing a clog. Attempting to clear this with chemical drain cleaners can actually damage the durability of the pipe walls and lead to bigger problems down the line.
- Grease- Grease, fats, and oils can be terrible for your drains. Though they may go down smoothly at first, once they cool, they harden. If enough of it hardens over time, you could have a clog on your hands.
- Food particles- Some foods don’t get broken down well by the garbage disposal. Even those that do can still build and accumulate. You should always throw all food into your garbage and not overly depend on the garbage disposal.
Foreign, non-solvent debris can clog your drains much quicker or can combine with existing sludge to block the flow of water through your pipes. Working the blockage with a drain snake can help to eliminate your clogs. However, if the problem persists, contact us at L.E. Isley & Sons. We can mechanically clear even the deepest and most persistent of clogs you encounter.
How Do Burst Pipes Occur?
Burst pipes can lead to the inside of your home being flooded by the water pouring out of the pipe. You may not immediately notice a pipe has burst until you notice a drop in water pressure or rot on the walls or ceilings inside of your home.
There are several factors that can weaken pipes and cause them to burst, but freezing temperatures is by far the most common cause. It isn't just the expanding ice inside pipes that causes them to burst open, but the pressure that builds up as water and air aren't free to flow through your pipes. Opening faucets during cold weather helps prevent pipes from bursting because they alleviate the pipe's internal pressure.
Faucet & Other Plumbing Fixture Replacement
Problems with your faucets and toilets may seem minor and go unattended to for years. But as faucet leaks or toilet clogs become more frequent, you could benefit from replacing them. Leaky faucets waste water, leading to spikes in your utility bills, while constantly clogged or leaking toilets can create a health risk inside of your home.
When your faucet has suffered heavy corrosion, you stand to save money in the long run by replacing the troublesome faucet. You could benefit from a toilet replacement if the current fixture's porcelain has been compromised by a fissure or its parts are worn. If your home's toilets are slow to flush and you find that they often require multiple flushes, you could conserve water, and save on your bills, by upgrading them with new fixtures.
